Our emphasis on highly creative and artistic forms of influence lies at the heart of our notion of a contemporary wise woman. Why this focus?
The style of communication associated with patriarchal systems stresses the linear and the logical, expressed through institutional communications as boring tables, charts, graphs, statistics and text-heavy reports. Perfect for conveying basic information, but terrible for changing attitudes or enriching the spirit.
We believe what’s needed is creative, colourful, memorable messaging that will engage the disengaged and cause them to say, “Ah-hah! Now I get it. Now I want to be involved.”
A great way to generate these Ah-hah moments is via art, music, humour, storytelling, dance and theatre, where the head connects to the heart, giving rise to deep meaning and commitment.
